Pure & Pureland Origami - origami-resource-center.com : Japanese art therapist Toshiko Kobayashi has explored the use of origami for over ten years with a range of clients, particularly with children suffering the effects of trauma and sexual abuse. She has found the structure of origami activities and achievable outcomes can provide a sense of security and hope for the future and repetition can build resilience and achievement in overcoming what may seem like obstacles or difficult tasks (Kobayashi 2007)
